Updated: Brendan Beith Leaving Role as European Ref Data MD at Interactive Data

Brendan Beith is leaving Interactive Data, where he has been managing director, pricing and reference data for Europe, Middle East and Africa for the past four years. Update: His role is being filled by Claudio Salinardi of Thomson Reuters.

Claudio has spent the past 10 years at Thomson Reuters, most recently as managing director, fixed income. Before that he worked on the user side at Piper Jaffray, ABN Amro, Friedman Billings Ramsey and JP Morgan, all in US equity research sales. In his new role he will report to Andrew Hausman, president, pricing and reference data, based in New York.

This change fits in with imminent changes we’re hearing about at the company. More on those just as soon as we can get some confirmation…

Brendan was with Interactive Data for over 20 years. Before his MD role, he was European sales director at the company. He has held many sales roles at the company through many name changes – from Extel Financial to FT Information to FT Interactive.

Brendan says he has no immediate plans “other than a bit of R&R”. Oh, and heading to the pub for his leaving drinks.
